    “Condomman–I mean The Target’s head tip lights to indicate a lie!”

    Target: “Dude, it,s a shotgun.”

  2. Holy crap, does this mean Target is fighting John Moses Browning? That dude looks like he might be old enough, provided that’s actually not a mask, and actually his wrinkly bald head. (Browning is the inventor of the repeating shotgun; look it up).

  3. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think a guy with a giant archery target on his chest should be taunting a guy two feet away with a giant gun…

    No worries. He can see that the “genius inventor” forgot to install a trigger on his portable cannon. What he really has is an unwieldy club.

  5. Always make your guns so big that you can’t properly hold them. Liefeld Rule #1

  6. Note: Liefeld Rule #1 has been attempted in Hollywood action movies as well, but with stuntwires they CAN be held properly. Liefeld just needed stuntwires to hold up his guns, and tie back his drawing hand . . .
